Grab your favourite pumpkin-flavoured snacks and snag a hot, cinnamon-spiced latte to go, because here are Toronto’s best fall-themed activities for you and your family.
Snap some pics while pumpkin picking
Is there anything as fall as picking a bright orange pumpkin straight out of the patch? The best part is that pumpkin farms often have wagon rides, corn mazes, and other fall activities for that perfect Instagram picture.

Take a guided Haunted Toronto walk
There are five different tours you can take throughout Toronto, hosted by The Haunted Walk, ranging from the Distillery District to Black Creek Pioneer Village. These city-wide tours feature live ghost stories, professional actors, and a guided tour throughout your location.
Laugh at your fears at Night of Dread
Part parade, part community gathering, and part art-meets-politics political demonstration, Night of Dread is a must-do for Dufferin Grove residents (and everyone else in Toronto). Participants dress up in “black, white, and dreadful” to march a short route, then meet up in the park for a life-sized puppet show.
Check out the International Festival of Authors
The annual International Festival of Authors brings together the best writers of contemporary and world literature from all across the globe. The event features author readings, book signings, writer-celebrity meet-and-greets and more.
And since fall is all about cozying up with a warm sweater, a hot pumpkin latte, and a great book, the IFA marks Toronto book-lovers’ favourite time of year.
Go on a fall foliage hike
Toronto’s foliage is world-renowned – so don’t forget to take some time to check out the sights! With beautiful trails running all through the city, such as Highland Creek Trail or High Park, there’s no excuse to avoid fall foliage when you’re on the hunt for the perfect fall activities.
Experts say that, due to Toronto’s always-changing weather, the leaf cycle won’t completely finish until late season this year. So you’ve got extra time to bundle up and hit the trails!
